Its a rubbish device, i once worked for mtn and i can authoritatively say dnt fall for this device. Its not worth it, simply buy ur inverter no matter how small it is, even a good ups is better than this trash

Bro take it easy now, you once worked with MTN and I don't have any problem with that...and that does not even make you to know more about it than the person that is actually using it.
Mind you, it's an exaggeration to compare mtn Lumos with UPS, can you charge your UPS with sun? Can your inverter work without any power source, be it generator or PHCN?
I am a user of MTN Lumos solar and I have said so many things about it. Is there any thing you want to fault in what I've said?
I am using the device and am enjoying every bit of it
150 per day for 24 hours electricity is OK for me and my family
It is best for those who don't have frequent electricity supply, people living in rural settings or new sites
Anybody that wants to know more about it can contact me on watzap 08034794904

Well man must chop, even in the dark, make i no spoil ur biz, iv had access to its backend application which is more info than any normal user may have. The concept is good but let me stop there.. all the best in ur biz
|Re: A Sincere Review Of Mtn Lumos Solar Electricity by pobeaf(m): 8:39am On Dec 23, 2017|
I was expecting you to make valid points so that people who are following this thread could make an informed decision but you couldn't do that.
All you've said simply shows that you have personal grudge with MTN.
I use it to barb my hair, it charges my laptop, my phones and other devices any time, it lights my house 24 hours and I also use it watch my 26" Lg LED TV all of these for just for 150 naira per day and you are telling me it's not good with no valid points.
Bro am using it and am enjoying it well and if it stops working tomorrow I stop paying, is there any big deal in that?
Erratic power supply in my area isn't giving me headache any more
|Re: A Sincere Review Of Mtn Lumos Solar Electricity by d33types: 8:57am On Dec 23, 2017|
We do not read terms and conditions ,and that's why somebody will jump into buying this rubbish device which is restricted by daily or monthly subscription.
Imagine 4500 every month for 5 years that is 270,000 minus initial costs. It's not worth it, in my opinion.
There are lots of devices which are more reliable and cheaper with that cost.

Ok since uv made it personal,i hv noting against mtn personally, all im saying is that its a good concept but a terrible product. Its a simple inverter like it or not, u can do more with a simple inverter with 1 solar panel. Its still rubbish and i dnt recommend it to any body, readers its penny wise pound foolish dont buy
|Re: A Sincere Review Of Mtn Lumos Solar Electricity by error4040: 12:13pm On Dec 23, 2017|
@Op what i dont understand is payment of N150 daily when the device uses Sun and solar panel Abi Mtn now own The Sun ?.
Why not buy solar Panel instead youre busy shouting its just for N150 daily that those who cant Afford to pay N150 the device is not ment for Them, To me thats pure Bullshit! Why ?
Well why dont they give the device for free? but instead they sale the device and still charge you for Using it. or please kindly
do the Math N150 X 30 = N4500
NB: A penny wise Nigerian should boycott this Capitalist company and it device for They are not planning to help but to milk average nigerians
|Re: A Sincere Review Of Mtn Lumos Solar Electricity by pobeaf(m): 2:28pm On Dec 23, 2017|
Free as the sun is can you generate electricity from it with nothing? I know how much inverter, solar battery, solar panel and installation cost. So also I know that I will be responsible for its repair unlike MTN Lumos that would be repaired or replaced by MTN for the next 5 years if the need arises.
I recharge my line 4,500 monthly to subscribe the light and receive 11,250 promo on better talk which I use to call all networks...so it pays me
Mtn Lumos is not for everybody, it's for those who don't have regular supply of electricity or those who don't have light at all.
Since morning I've been using my laptop with no disturbing noise of generator or having to think of where to get petrol.

If you are reading this thread and wants to ask further questions, you can contact me on watzap 08034794904
I will only guide you, am not going to ask you for a dime
|Re: A Sincere Review Of Mtn Lumos Solar Electricity by error4040: 4:24pm On Dec 23, 2017|
And why did you not mention this
1. You must pay for a minimum of 20 days in a
month or it will be taken away from you.
2. If you use it even for just one hour in a day you pay the full daily price.
3. It will cost you about N3,000 per month for
very limited power.
4. It is low capacity. With small sized TV it will
run out in not more than 2-3 hours in the night
may be better during the day. On days when it
rains and heavy cloud with little sunshine you will
have no light especially if you exhausted it the
5. You will only stop paying after 5 years and by
then, the battery will probably be dead.
Paying outright it would cost N402,000.
If paying over 2 years it would be N447,000 over
the 2 year period.
6. This is just mindless money-making by MTN
and Lumos and I suspect that it will fail for lack of
patronage they may be force to increase their Price later on.

How is this a sincere review.. You literally just praised the system. Patsy
|Re: A Sincere Review Of Mtn Lumos Solar Electricity by pobeaf(m): 5:38pm On Dec 23, 2017|
It's a sincere review from my own experience, I mentioned the pros and cons, that's where the sincerity comes. Is there anything I said that you want to fault?
"I literarily praised the system" Yes I did, because that has being my experience.
If you have any question, pls ask...if not, thank you for reading the post

All what you mentioned in 1, 2, & 3 has to do with payment which I have earlier discussed before, so I don't care so long I pay 4,500 and I receive a bonus of 11,250 to call all networks. And if you don't pay they won't take it away as you've mentioned in your first point, they will only call to encourage you to pay like dstv...that's all
As regards your point 4...You can always maximize the use, it's not compulsory you exhaust the battery with heavy gadget whenever there is no enough sunlight to recharge the system
As regards your point 5...your arithmetic is wrong. Subscriber will pay 270,000 in 5 years if he is paying 4,500 per month. Pls recalculate
You aren't making any valid point in 6 since the subscriber can discontinue at any point in time

To every system, there is always a short term payoff or a long term payoff or it could be both. The mtn lumos like any other solar power system isnt exceptional. Considering the fact that you only had to pay a sub 20k + continuos #150/day for startup cost, one can say that the Lumos unlike any other custom system has a short term payoff with respect to cost. Like 'pointstores' has rightly said, there are custom built systems that cost a lot more cheaper than the overall lumos cost. However, not many Nigerians can afford the one time cost of those systems. To some nigerians, an initial 19500 plus a daily 150naira payment seems affordable compared to a one time payment of say, 60k. I believe the lumos system from mtn is a great initiative for 'some targeted nigerians'. Nigerians who perhaps find it exhorbitant paying for a custom system without realising that the lumos has little to no longterm payoff in terms of overall cost. In addition to startup cost, maintenance cost such as repair and/or replacement of components is another point which the lumos scores over custom systems. With Lumos, you dont have to spend a dime for repair and maintenance (that is mtn's responsibility also note T& C apply)whereas this same burden is on the user in the case of custom system.
In a summary, MTN Lumos is expensive but seems cheap at first while custom systems with similar specifications and capacity seems expensive at first but a lot more cheaper than the Lumos.

Like others have said, this is just marketing disguised as a review. I bet this thing will not give you 24 hours light. If OP wants to be sincere, use your TV, a decoder and a fan on the Lumous after 5pm and tell us how long it takes for the Lumous to switch off. Let us know if it lasts for 3 hours.
|Re: A Sincere Review Of Mtn Lumos Solar Electricity by pobeaf(m): 12:46pm On Dec 25, 2017|
When there is good sunlight you can use all you've mentioned but at night you have to use it based on the battery level. I never said am using it for 24 hours because I don't stay at home for 24 hours. All am saying is that it pays me for 150 naira per day because I use it for the most important things to me.
With 150 naira per day, I get value for my money
